Why it’s important to have a growth mindset and not a fixed mindset!
This is a great visual
Growth mindset allows us to fail, experience, try new things, all whilst having a positive mindset about what comes from doing.
Compared to the fixed mindset which tends to focus on the negative and therefore, limits or reduces what action we take.
For example, goal = I’m going to grow my connections on LinkedIn.
Growth mindset says...
1) This is a great opportunity to grow my list
2) I’ll understand more about my target market
3) I might increase my current contact list
4)This could lead to a call/meeting
Fixed mindset says.... 1) I don’t know who to contact
2) There is no way of finding out who to reach out to
3) What if no one responds
4) This would be embarrassing and a waste of my time
Which mindset do you tend to be in?
You know when you come across a book and it changes your life?
I first read Playing Big a few years ago and fell in love with Tara & her message that as women we need to stop playing small, that we need to be more comfortable about putting gifts out into the world. That we shouldn’t let the fear of criticism & rejection hold us back.
You may know that this year, as well as baking I’ve also launched support groups, a group mastermind & training programs to help food & drink entrepreneurs to achieve great results in their businesses.
It’s been a huge learning curve to go from baking to doing FB lives, finding time to record training videos. It’s a big leap into the unknown, but re reading Tara’s book (this pic is me in New Quay Wales reading a couple of chapters over coffee) has really helped me to stay focused on why I need to do this.
And I am beyond excited to be meeting Tara in person at an event tonight in London! I can’t wait!
Anyone else find it really hard to make decisions sometimes? Being an entrepreneur it’s all on you to make decisions every day, from what to post on Instagram to how much stock to order. It can be so draining! And scary... although I always want to be bold that often comes with risks and sometimes you just aren’t in the mood to take them! 💗 On the flip side though, from every decision good or bad, you can always learn...
Sequel to yesterday's post, like I've mentioned many times in previous posts, you must first calculate your operating expenses & your Cost of goods or services sold (COGS/COSS - I've explained how to do this many times). Only then should you add the mark up to determine your price.
In determining your mark up (% to add to your cost price to determine your selling price), your target Willingness To Pay (WTP) must be considered.
WTP can be influenced by the following:
1. If the customer believes that a higher price signifies higher quality. - Do you want to position your product/service as higher quality? Then you can increase your % mark up.
2. If the customer values your product/services above those of your competitors. If you know what you're offering is superior to what currently exists, then you might command a higher WTP.
3. Their demographics/psychograpics/behaviour like age, sex, income, education. For instance if you sell children's item, the WTP for females may be higher than that for males so consider who you're marketing when setting your price.
4. State of the economy e.g when economy is booming - Higher WTP and when there is a recession - Lower WTP. Election periods also see a lower WTP.
5. Trends is also a factor. If something is in demand then there is tendency for higher WTP so you can have a high mark up.
6. The current price perception - whether the price will increase or decrease also determines WTP.
7. A bundle offer might increase a WTP. The illusion of getting something extra will always help.
So look at your pricing and determine which you want to play on then craft your message around what you think your customer's WTP factor is. ******

We Celebrate you our dear Founder Dr. Elisha Attai
Regrann from @elishaattai - Not for us alone do we strive. We strive for the voiceless. We strive not for a place in history, but for a story in the hearts of our children; that they may have a place in the future where passion and vision forms an alliance, and cascades into generational change across boundaries.
It was truly an honor to be hosted by Her Excellency, Ellen Sirleef Johnson, former President of Liberia, Nobel Peace Prize and Mo Ibrahim Prize Winner.... above all, an iconic African Woman of Worth. She colored my day beautifully with her endorsement of my book and some lovely comments.... "Dr. Attai, this is the best book I have seen celebrating and encouraging African Women Leaders. I'm really proud of you, I welcome you once again to Liberia." I am grateful for this little contribution to celebrate and honor the African woman, and to raise, inspire our daughters to stand on their shoulders. THIS IS DEFINITELY A MUST READ BOOK.
We are going LIVE on Amazon this week and we are going to be available for download worldwide soon. The tour is on!! Let's go!!!!! African Women of Worth - 100 Amazons Volume 1 by Dr. Elisha Attai. @awloint

Yesterday was an exciting day planning the launch of my NEW Big Me Up podcast.
If you work in the #fitness#health or #wellness niche then this show was designed just for you. If you work in any service based industry then this show is just for you too because these guys are way ahead of the game when it comes to marketing your business.
I don’t like to follow the crowd so expect the unexpected. .
I like to have a different conversation so expect real conversations and real wins that you can use to grow your biz not the usual cookie cutter conversations that tell you what to do but never tell you how really. We’re laying it all out on the table.
I have explosive interviews coming up with leading gurus who talk about stuff they’ve never revealed before and it gets quite emotional.
We’re working hard behind the scenes getting it ready and we’re already looking for guests for next season.
Who would you like me to interview, let me know in the comments below?
Zoals jullie wellicht weten werk ik sinds begin juli voor o.a @thegoaldiggersclub. Achter de schermen zijn we al een tijd bezig met The Goaldiggers Club Session van 30 september en de aankomende weken maken we de sprekers bekend. Nu denk je waarschijnlijk: ja leuk en wat heb ik hier aan? Nou VEEL! Want we geven ook elke week een GRATIS ticket weg. Wat je er voor moet doen en hoe je mee kan doen lees je in de Stories van @thegoaldiggersclub. Doe jij al mee? 💥
This year has been the best year of my life, I want to thank you all for believing in Self Care Co. For understanding our concept + helping us spread kindness all over the 🌍.
Here are a few of my favourite moments from the last few months 💚
Meeting you guys in person has been life changing for me. Your energies have brought me so much strength + happiness 💫.
A few years ago I was severely anxious and living in fear of everything. I couldn’t work, I couldn’t see my friends. I couldn’t get on the tube. I was paralysed with anxiety. Constantly exhausted after each panic attack. I would never have thought I would ever be in this position I am in now. Anxiety free + working full time on a project I adore 🙏
For years I studied the mind and this is what I learnt...
Through time, acceptance + surrendering to the present moment, we can change our lives.
Never give up. Stop defining yourself as ‘an anxious person’ I did this for years and I am certain this didn’t help alleviate any of my symptoms.
YOU can change your life, it is never too late.
Acceptance. Surrender to the NOW. It is all we have. Let go of hate. Breathe.
I love you guys and am always here if you ever need an ear 💚.

EXPLORATION • As kids we’re constantly exploring, learning, doing things we’ve never done before. As we grow up it’s easy to start getting fixed ideas of who we are and get habitual about the things we do and try, and I would say that’s how we easily lose the natural enchantment that life provides. I wonder how you feel about exploring and trying new things? Is it easy and exciting or something you seldom do and kind of fear, maybe a bit of both? I’d love to know... #explore#curiosity#mindfulness#askyourself
The universe doesn't make things happen. YOU DO. ✨
I love that parable that she shares in Eat Pray Love about the man who prays every day to win the lottery, and one day the god responds and tells him to buy a ticket.
The same is true for your business. Someone has to win the "viral sensation lottery", yes, but rarely is it the person who was just putting out good vibes. More often it's the people who have been putting in the time to create valuable content for years. And those people, regardless of whether or not they win that lottery, will certainly have more lasting success than the people who are just sitting around hoping to get lucky.
No amount of positive energy or creative ideas or good intentions will grow your business. Good vibes don't pay the bills. Hard work does that. 👊🏻

The slow summer season is winding down and the fast frenzy of fall is moving in. There are a million to-do lists at home, school & work (because we all feel the end of the year looming) and we want to squeeze it all in. We pack our days so tight we barely have room to breathe. *********************************************************
But suffocating under the weight of our “to-do’s” means we barely have space for creativity and we sacrifice the quality of our productivity. Forget about enjoying our days or finding time for being present during our daily grind. ********************************************************* How can we stretch our 24 hours to make a little room to breathe? Just stop and breathe. Look at your list. Pick the top 3 priorities and slash the rest. If it doesn’t absolutely need to be done today, it doesn’t make the cut. Pare everything down to only the barest essential. And then forget the rest. For today. There’s always tomorrow. *********************************************************
✨There is always enough time if we slow down to take it✨Meditation or other mind-body and breath awareness exercises help us invite space into our back-to-back moments. No time for yoga or not feeling comfortable with meditation yet? Try a brief walk or just sitting quietly for a few minutes for an instant reset. *********************************************************
Wishing you room to breathe in the space within time. Xoxo, Chrissy 💖
